HOT: Designing 007 – 50 Years of Bond Style, Melbourne Museum, Nicholson St, Carlton

Designing 007 – 50 years of Bond Style is Melbourne Museum‘s showcase James Bond exhibition for the summer. And if you don’t want to share the space with gawping noisy kids then I recommend heading to the museum on Friday nights when the exhibition is open for adults only, with special location themed nights, martini […]

HOT: Underground Cinema Snow, Collingwood College, cnr Cromwell St and McCutcheon Way, Collingwood

Underground Cinema is more than just going to the movies – it’s a whole theatrical experience in a secret location, with a secret film revealed right at the end. It’s fun, novel and has developed a bit of a cult following since it first started in Melbourne in 2009. I was invited to experience Underground Cinema‘s […]

HOT: Hollywood Costume, ACMI, Federation Square

If you like fashion, design, movies or movie stars, do not miss ACMI’s Winter Masterpiece exhibition this year, Hollywood Costume which explores the role costume design plays in cinema. It comes to Melbourne via the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and it’s one of the best curated exhibitions I’ve visited recently. It doesn’t just consist of a […]

HOT: Night of the Lepus, Cinema Fiasco!, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Cinema Nova, 368-384 Lygon St, Carlton

This year for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival I decided to do things a little differently. Rather than going to see a packed timetable of international stand up comics (my usual modus operandi) I watched a film instead. Ever heard of ‘Night of the Lepus‘? Me either. Night of the Lepus is an unintentionally funny sci-fi […]

HOT List: Melbourne International Film Festival 2012 picks

Last night RM and I attended the members preview of Melbourne International Film Festival 2012 just so we could get our hands on the program before public release online today and in hard copy this Friday 13 July. As is our annual tradition, we spent the night making a longlist and then shortlist of 20 […]

Underground Cinema Hope – Giveaway

Underground Cinema is a secret film screening event that happens in secret locations throughout inner Melbourne and for the first time ever – Sydney. I’ve been a guest of Underground Cinema a few times (read reviews here and here) and it’s always been great fun – there’s the opportunity to get into fancy-dress and meet […]

HOT: High Tea at the Movies, Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon St, Carlton

For three weekends my local cinema Cinema Nova are holding High Tea At The Movies – the more refined version of the multiplex Gold Class experience. For $39 you get to sip tea, bubble or a Pimms cocktail and receive a box of treats while enjoying a new release film. I was invited to try their high tea during […]

Next Wave Festival 2012 – Day Pass Giveaway!

I’ve been a fan of Next Wave Festival since I volunteered to man a Docklands shipping container/arts space for the festival years ago. Well, Next Wave Festival 2012 opens next Saturday (19-27 May) and this year they’re running a bit of an experiment to help you discover a new way of experiencing an arts festival. With a […]

HOT: Rooftop Cinema, 6/252 Swanston St, Melbourne

Ah summer! There are certain events that happen every year which really mark the season in Melbourne. Cricket. Tennis. The Suzuki Night Market. Free music in the parks. And one of my favourites, outdoor cinema. Every year I try to get to at least one summer movie screening under the stars – it’s still a […]
